Juvederm and Tyndall Effect NYC
It appears from your photos that the product may have been placed too superficially and needs to be dissolved with Vitrase. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
It looks like a tyndall effect from the filler being placed superficially. Hyaluronidase can be used to dissolve the product.
The bluish hue you see may be the tyndall effect. Something that can happen with Juvederm. The initial swelling should resolve in few days to a few weeks. If it doesn't hyaluronidase can be used to dissolve the Juvederm.
If the Juvederm was injected too superficially it can cause a Tyndall affect. Usually injections in the cheeks are deep and you cannot see the product. Without knowing what method was used it is hard to determine by the pictures. It could be a bruise as well. Some bruises take longer to heal and go away. I hope this helps.
Tyndall Effect after Injections
Thank you for your question. If a hylauronic acid filler (like juvederm) is injected too superficially, it can cause a blue-ish hue to the skin. This is called the Tyndall Effect. It will not go away until the product goes away - so, either over time or through an injection that dissolves the product (like Vitrase). It still *could* be bruising, or related to your lymphatics, but chances are it's just that the product was too superficially placed. If it doesn't get better in a week or two, and you continue to see it, I would suggest dissolving the product. Best of luck!
